Vendor Opportunity: Lexington Farmers’ Market
The Small Yet Mighty Winter Farmers’ Market takes place every other Saturday from January – mid April at the Waldorf School in Lexington, MA. This winter market is on the smaller size (~10 vendors total) with a good variety of product offering. They call themselves Small Yet Mighty as we may be small, but they have a bit of everything from meat & fish, to ready to eat foods, baked goods, and specialty products. Most of our vendors come from our regular season, outdoor market. However, our main produce vendor will not be returning as they sold more CSA shares than anticipated leaving the amount of veggies planted for market pretty tight. Therefore, we are looking for a produce vendor, preferably for someone who would be able to bring a variety of their own winter produce: root veggies, variety of greens, etc.
